The things i wanted to do first of all to it were:</p><p>a) Get my style on it (Module::Built it etc. )<br>b) Sort out the check for version before loading module "bug"<br>c) Look at maybe adding Pod::Coverage support.</p><p>Of course then i get the mails/patches that other people have sent Marcel over the past few months!</p><p>Its nice to know there are other ppl that are thinking along the same lines as me. But it did feel a teeny weeny bit overwhelming at first.</p><p>Just wanted to let ppl know that i am planning to go through all of them (inc. rt) in the coming weeks/months.</p><p>If I'm lucky I'll be able to push something out later today [altho i don't know what that something is yet<nobr> <wbr></nobr>;-)<nobr> <wbr></nobr>... but hey.. release early, release often]</p><p>This probably means that the initial release of Pod::DocBookXML will be delayed a bit... its almost there... [he says for the nth time]. It can't go out yet cos there's one bug that might end up renderin it useless in many cases which i want to fix first. (screw release early, release often<nobr> <wbr></nobr>;-))</p><p><nobr> <wbr></nobr>/me goes off to sing a song</p> Sags 2003-11-09T13:53:22+00:00 journal Template::Plugin::EnvHash + Fun Module building Modules <p>Yey! I've just uploaded my second CPAN module to PAUSE:</p><p>Template::Plugin::EnvHash</p><p>I wish i'd written it sooner.</p><p>Still writing it today has given me a chance to try out some of the relatively new excellent cpan modules:</p><p>ExtUtils::ModuleMaker<br>Module::Build<br>Module::Signature<br>Test::Signature<nobr> <wbr></nobr>/me hopes he hasn't missed anything out</p><p>oooh this was fun<nobr> <wbr></nobr>:-)</p><p>I hope someone else finds Template::Plugin::EnvHash useful. It'll cetainly be helpful to me for some future work.</p> Sags 2003-09-07T21:20:26+00:00 journal My first cpan module :-) <p>The first usable release of my first CPAN module, <a href="">Getopt::CallingName</a> has reached CPAN<nobr> <wbr></nobr>:-)</p><p>I hope someone else finds it useful too.</p><p>Now should i be a 'completer/finisher' and strike off the other todo items so i can reach what i consider to be version 1.00<nobr> <wbr></nobr>... or should i turn my attention to what i can contribute next...</p><p>Hmmm.. and should i post to comp.lang.perl.announce ? The authoritative place for new modules is the use.perl/search.cpan new recent modules page<nobr> <wbr></nobr>... should we use this newsgroup for perl module releases at all?...</p> Sags 2003-06-13T08:18:41+00:00 journal
